Manchester United defender Phil Jones has been ruled out for up to a month with a torn hamstring, manager Louis van Gaal has revealed.

Jones hobbled off in the second half of England's 2-0 win in Switzerland on Monday and he is now likely to be unavailable for a number of weeks.

"Phil has a torn hamstring," Van Gaal said.

"He is maybe out for three weeks or a month."
